David Shepherd Original
Little Jumbo is now being sold as part of a private estate. Details have been provided by their son, Andrew:
“My father was an RAF pilot in Aden in the mid 60s. During this period my mother and father became friendly with David whom they met at RAF Khormaksar whilst he was there in the capacity of an Aviation Artist. They all met again later in Nairobi and Mombasa.
When they returned to the UK in 1976, my mother asked David for a painting. The result being a beautiful and finely detailed painting in oils, which David referred to as his ‘Little Jumbo’.
It remained my mother’s most prized and loved possession for over 40 years”.
